Duke of Earl cover on track 16 into what basically woulda passed for a piano intro at a Mother's show in '69... into the most raging Tripe Face I've ever heard.

A+

Subject: Little Feat Live at Richards' in Atlanta
Just to set the record straight, this recording is in fact a live board mix. It was recorded onto a cassette master, using a Stevenson Interface sixteen channel console (where only fifteen channels were working). The drop outs and missing parts are due to years of playing the master cassette on substandard tape decks, and getting chewed up in the process.
The engineer is Mike Hatchett, who worked there until joining Little Feat on the road. He has two album credits. One is on "The Last Record Album", and the second is on "Hoy, Hoy".
Considering the lower quality recording devices used, it still is one of the best live/Lowell George recordings out there.
The Mel Blanc and "China White" recordings came from Mike Hatchett's personal collection of recordings. This is a true 100% fact!

Some of the flac files are missing from this page. They all seem to be listed on the HTTP page though.

Subject: Just a date nitpick...
This show couldn't have been on January 1, 1973 because Richard's nightclub in Atlanta didn't open for business until February 1973.

Date should probably be January 1, 1974. Otherwise, great stuff!

Subject: Fine Show, Good Sound
From the half dozen or so shows I've downloaded, it appears Little Feat rarely had an off night. Strong playing throughout this set with strong vocals and guitar from Lowell George and the typical rock-steady funky grooves by all.

Some vocal vamping during an extended Dixie Chicken. The first "Tripe Face Boogie" (a song I've never much liked) gets chopped off and is mostly a keyboard solo. The next track, "Bag of Reds," starts up roughly with higher volume. (Perhaps it was the encore.) Then it is back to another "Tripe Face Boogie," this one with poor sound relative to most of the other tracks. This apparently ended the show.

"China White" isn't part of the Richard's show. This is a studio recording, perhaps a bootleg of the track that eventually ended up on the odds-and-ends album "Hoy Hoy." There are horns and background female vocals. Fidelity only so-so, but an interesting song.

As for the sound, there are some glitches, but overall it is quite good. The original source seems to be a soundboard recording. The mix is a bit odd: the drum and bass are sometimes too prominent in the mix, and the cymbals are mostly missing. Perhaps a problem with the tape recording not picking up the high frequencies (yes, Virginia, in those days recording high frequencies to tape was a problem, particularly when the tape was "budget" or the recording speed was low) or maybe they didn't mic the cymbals or mix them prominently in a small venue because the "live" sound was coming through. At any rate, the problems are ones of omission not commission -- everything is clear and the mix is ok overall - very listenable. For the very best sounding shows on the Archive, download the two excellent Ultra Sonic shows. These were recorded in a studio to reel-to-reel tape for FM broadcast and are both great performances.

I love this show. For those who want to dl in lossless, please note that the files listed as 256mp3 files are, in fact, the lossless files missing from the flac column. Therefore, the entire show is available in lossless format. Also, I was not able to access the ftp site.

Great show, that track at the end messed me up. Wish I could have seen these guys in the early days.

Subject: Bet it is this date
This is much more likely 9-17-73 or one of the following nights. But! The show is interesting material for Feat aficionados because it is clearly early, regardless of the date - and there is limited live material from that era. They play an old favorite - Bag of Reds, which is great. The Mel Blanc piece is absolutely priceless. Even if you don't download the show it is worth it to play or grab that one item.

That aside, the quality is mediocre. Some technical glitches and inconsistencies exist. The instruments come out OK, and Lowell's guitar sounds good, but the vocals were generally undermixed and overall tone is low fidelity.

Subject: MEL BLANC GET WELL WORDS TO RITCHIE HAYWARD
THIS TRACK IS ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING AND AMAZING! Without knowing the history it appears the greatest cartoon character voice (Blanc) was a Little Feat fan. This is too surreal.

Subject: Not 73'
This recording does not sound like its from 73' at all, at least this early. This is probably from somewhere around early to mid 74' just by listening to the groups sound. Lowell's slide playing sounds a lot more developed than he was in 73' (basically he was playing better) and the songs too show that it had to be from around 74. However this is just the date and has no bearing on how the show is. This sounds great. Performance is amazing. Cool distortion on Lowell's guitar. Recording is muddy and some of the tracks go dead or skip over sections of songs. Possibly just an error with my download, but I'll keep it.
